Please be respectful of the land owner's wishes and do not climb or hike here until further notice. This includes White Lightning, Skinner Roof, Weather Wall, Yellow Wall, Larry's Annihilation, Needle Rock, Mississippi Fred's, and Secret Tom's. Park officials and CRAG are working to regain access to this valuable climbing resource. Be patient and check back for updates.

Crux comes just below the top, where you have two option: tweak your fingers into flared blue tcu sized jams or slap out to the arete just left of the crack for an exciting and athletic finish. Of course, those with large digits only have the later option. You don't really need tape, as Binghams guide suggests- its not that rough. This thing feels a hell of a lot longer than 40 feet after you've climbed it!
